    Check out Malahide Castle, just outside the city of Dublin. You can take a public bus there in about 30 minutes. This was one of my favorite castles and grounds to explore!

      @Michelle – thanks for the tip…looks like it’s time to go back!

    Did you drive right from Dublin to Dingle? Just want to know how long it took you! The destinations you chose sound right up my alley.

    1. Trav says:

      @Elizabeth – Yep, we did. We didn’t do it straight, we stopped along the way, but it’s a pretty easy drive. The roads do get pretty pretty narrow about an hour from Dingle. We did it in the dark, which turned out ok, but it’s much easier to do during the day.

    While I’m not usually a fan of the Hop On, Hop Off buses for their tourist feel, I thought the Dublin one was great. The city is somewhat spread out with its “must see” landmarks, so we thought with our short stay in Dublin, it was great to be able to take a day and jump off where we wanted to explore more and then be able to get back on and get a ride to the next spot. If it’s not raining, get a seat on the roof of the bus so you can see the city from a higher perspective. Also, there’s a very cool movie theater across the way from the Jameson Distillery and if you’re looking for a sweet hostel with both dorm and private rooms, take a look at Generator right next door.

      @Kourtney – Awesome advice, thanks. Agreed that sometimes those Hop On, Hop Off can be a great way to see a place if you have limited time or it’s spread out. And I’m always up for checking out movie theaters. Thanks!
